    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($69.98 @ NCIX US)
    Memory: Corsair Dominator 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($154.31 @ Mac Connection)
    Storage: Seagate Momentus Thin 500GB 2.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive ($55.99 @ Amazon)
    Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card ($130.38 @ Newegg)
    Case: Xion AXP970-001BK ATX Mid Tower Case ($59.99 @ Newegg)

    um 150 bucks for some 1333 8gb ram i hope thats a joke. you can get some vengeance sticks for 38 bucks. and that would save you a 100 bucks. You DO NOT want a 5400 rpm hdd 7200 if its your only drive at least. get a wd cav blue at least. you should be able to get windows 7 oem for 99 bucks just about anywhere. If I were you Id go intel over AMD with the money you saved from dropping the parts i listed above get an i5 3570k with z77 board even a cheaper asrock z77 pro3/4 would work. Your system for streaming currently is not going to be close to great quality. Also Id recommend getting something better than a 7770 but its still a decent budget card. you could also get a cheaper PSU like an xfx pro 450 and power your system fine for about 20 cheaper

    xfx isn't worth it over seasonic.

    He doesn't need a better graphics card for Diablo & Lol.

    Cut the ram off to any vengeance 8GB 40eur and look for a streaming card.

    No, you can't stream on that CPU alone. You will need $100 more expensive processor for 720p or a $200 card for 1080p streaming.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    Errr Seasonic manufactures XFX PSU's. The ProSeries 450w is basically a re-branded S12II and great for the price, Seasonic nothing to compete in that wattage/price range.

    XFX uses Seasonic stuff?
